Hastings 1948/49
Compiled by suenteus po 147
--*--

The 24th Hastings Christmas Chess Festival was held at the end of the year 1948. Once again ten chess masters from England and the European continent were invited to participate in the round robin event. Due to the fierce competition occurring around the world championship cycle organized by FIDE, less notable masters and amateurs participated in this year's edition, yet the excitement of earlier premier events was kept alive by these tough competitors. 23 games were decisive among these players, with Nicolas Rossolimo distinguishing himself by the final with clear first, finishing undefeated with +4.

The final standings and crosstable:

1st Rossolimo 6/9 * 1 1 1 1

2nd Koenig 6/9 * 0 1 1 1 1

3rd Muhring 5/9 0 * 0 1 1 1 1

=4th Wood 5/9 1 * 1 0 0 1

=4th Fairhurst 5/9 0 0 1 0 * 1 1 1
